After 31 years' dedicated service to the practice, Dr Smith hung up her stethoscope at the end of March and is looking forward to a well-deserved retirement.
Dr Aileen van der Lee will also be leaving the practice at the end of June this year after 21 years as a partner.
Both GPs will be very much missed by the remaining partners and staff, and, we know, by their patients. However, I am sure all patients will join us in wishing both GPs a very well-deserved retirement as they start this exciting new phase of their lives.
Two GPs will be joining the practice at the beginning of July - Dr Rebecca Parker and Dr Katy Woods.
